    Just a thought now Gifty is off to the Catalan Dragons that next year may be Bretts last at Manly and he'll request a release to join him in '17 over there

    He'd be mad if he didn't. I'd jump at the chance. Didn't he just announce a one year extension for 2017 ?? he should have waited 3 weeks

    Stranger things have happened but he only just a couple of weeks ago signed an extension. Has this development all occured in the meantime and we may see Snake head off earlier?

    Surely Snake was aware of Gifty's leaving Souths before he extended. :wondering:

    Snake wants one more year to try to get 19 more tries. He will really 'go for it'. Which will be good for the.club, and our semi final chances.

    So what is a contract anyway. They all come and go as they (or club management) want now.

    Is Catalans the retirement home for ex-Manly players?

    He's still one of the best fullbacks in the NRL. I'll cry the day he leaves us.

    His defence and try assists are the best in the league. Not to mention he was back to his tryscoring best or very near to it this year.

    He'll be able to teach Tommy T plenty in the next 2 years and Tom won't find a better mentor.

    I hope he does get that extension to 2017. It won't cost us Tom. He'll stay with us as will Jake as they're Manly through and through.

    I think the one year extension was a good idea and good insurance. It shows to Snake he is wanted, appreciated and valued. If things work out as we expect ie abundance of back up fullbacks by the end of next year then he may find it easy to get a release. He would also go with a top up to pay a club. The contract may be an extra year (2018). Otherwise if things do not pan out with players (injury etc) he may be desparately needed for 2017 and we have a great fullback for that year.

    Just my thoughts.

    no it doesn't but when someone says I hope he does get the expension for 2017 it makes things more relevant....
